Lions Bearing Shields

Cast in warm limestone, this noble pair of handsome stone ornaments communicates a sense of power tempered by wisdom and compassion. Each stone lion rests a strong forepaw on a shield bearing a crest. On one shield is a stag's head, facing sinister, representing peace, harmony and fortitude - the very symbol of dauntless courage and dignity in the face of insuperable odds. On the other shield, a phoenix, facing dexter, rises from devouring flames, its wings spread in triumph. An eternal metaphor for resurrection and renewal, the phoenix is a potent image of victory springing from the ashes of defeat. Together, these lions and the shields they support embody the grand virtues of courage, dignity, hope and endurance.

The lion garden statues have been faithfully sculpted in clay and cast in reconstituted stone, then aged by hand. The lions shields are made of patinated bronze resin and can be made to clients personel specification (ie Family Coat of Arms).
